December 2020 in Films


Apologies for the delay on this post. My computer died at the end of December so this post as well as my end of the year wrap-up and my Favorite Fifteen Films of 2020 were delayed.

As always though, you will find everything I watched in December, a breakdown by decade, and a few favorites after the cut.

Dorothy Dandridge: He won’t give me a chance, Mama.

Mother: You can help with the dishes, even though it’s not a man-type thing to do. Man-type things. Women-type things. What does the creative force behind the universe care about such foolishness?

Chris: You are very beautiful.
Sherry: Thank you.
Chris: Uh, how did I come off? Too stuffy?
Sherry: Well, you certainly don’t act like one of the top ten minds in America.
Chris: Really? How many of them have you met?
Sherry: Seven.
Chris: Really?
Sherry: You’ll be eight. Professor Hostetler at M.I.T. was number six.
Chris: Old Professor Hostetler? Isn’t he dead?
Sherry: He is now.

Female Filmmaker Friday: Valley Girl, 1983 (dir. Martha Coolidge)


The first time I saw Valley Girl, I rented it from Netflix and I watched it three times in a 24-hour period before I returned it. I then immediately bought the DVD. I have seen it countless times (including twice on the big screen!). I just love it so much. It is endlessly watchable.
